It was reported back in September that Bethenny had already signed on for season 8, but she now makes it official: “Yes. I am back [this season], and it is spicy. You know last year, I had my ‘new car smell’ still on me. And I wasn’t getting into too much trouble. This season, I am knee-deep in the mud.”
Well, Sonja is now speaking out about the booze and girl drama going down with her Real Housewives Of New York co-star. But Sonja insists she’s not about to let a business venture destroy a friendship! Bethenny doesn’t seem to share Sonja’s ethics!
If you see Luann de Lesseps this week and she’s struggling to lift her hand, cut her some slack. The Real Housewives of New York star is now toting around 8 carats of sparkly bling on a certain finger! After a whirlwind romance, Countess Luann de Lesseps is engaged to Thomas D’Agostino Jr!
Thomas proposed this weekend and Luann happily accepted.
Bethenny Frankel is determined to have Skinnygirl take over the world. The Real Housewives Of New York star brags that she’s a businesswoman, not a reality star, however she won’t hesitate to slavishly use reality TV to promote her never-ending barrage of products. The latest Skinnygirl offering? Candy.
We’ll talk about Skinnygirl candy a bit later – first let’s talk about Real Housewives Of New York and Bethenny’s legal wranglings with Sonja Morgan! You know – our version of candy.
As for the Bravo influence on her business success, Bethenny dismisses it. “To be honest, at this point it has not as much as you’d imagine to do with being on television.” If that is the case, then why was 3/4 of last season’s RHONY dedicated to Skinnygirl shill? Moving on…
Ramona Singer is a lot of things but lazy, she ain’t! A real hustler by nature, always in search of the next BEST thing, the Real Housewives of New York City’sfrenzied co-star has pretty much always been a hard worker. Over the years she has launched a fashion and skincare line, created a jewelry line for the HSN and let’s not forget, her eponymous Pinot Grigio. Yep, Ramona is certainly a Jill-of-all-trades, so why not saunter into the hair biz? (It’s like a Real Housewives rite of passage!) Ramona is now selling real human hair extensions.
Ramona reportedly inked a deal with Lux Beauty Club’s co-founder Victoria Flores for a line of hair extensions that she will be promoting (and why not?) on her famed reality show. An insider who spoke to Page Six revealed, “She’s 100 percent involved. It’s real human hair extensions and she’s all about it.” Ramona is said to be excited about her new venture and very much wants her co-stars to sample the silky goods.
While I personally thought Bethenny was unfathomably rude to a woman she just met, who was a guest in her home, Bethenny defends her cutting comments to Erika because she was asked to “stir it up” a bit and was simply giving the producers what they wanted. Isn’t this reality TV – shouldn’t we doing what’s real?
